“I am a huge fan of Mentalism and I consider Ross (Johnson) to be one of the absolutely convincing practitioners in this field. …I honestly feel he is the most convincing mentalist I have ever witnessed. I remember being spellbound the first time I watched Ross perform his classic Blindfold Act in a small nightclub. There was a slightly edgy sense of self-irritation in his performance that I just loved. If he didn’t get it quite right, it seemed to bug him and drive him further into uncovering hidden
details. He is truly a master of the wonderful world of mind reading.” - Nick Lewin
 
“Not only is Ross a wonderful friend and confidant; he is also the deliverer of the strongest performance of mystery I’ve ever witnessed.” - Paul Vigil
 
“Ross Johnson? He’ll make you shit your pants.” - Jay Marshall
 

What will he teach?

 
“Necessary Lies”: Lessons in Meat Fabrication
 
Stroop Deluxe (with all new vibrant colors) Three psychological routines that require precise scripting, but no gimmicks or digital adroitness. It is the words that fool.
 
Voice Print Lie detector effects that were inspired by a clever but rather unreliable method developed by Ned Rutledge. These effects are close to 100% sure.
 
Toss the Princess Out of Sight Playing cards in mentalism illustrated by three routines. Tossed Out Deck; Impostress Princess; Out of Sight, Out of Mind,
 
Omar's Prophecy Using the venerable one ahead technique in a way that is actually deceptive and relevant.
 
Caffeinated Coins A presentation of “Jackpot Coins” that takes it out of the realm of a mathematical puzzle.
 
Book Tests Three book tests that actually have a plot beyond the mere revelation of a word. 1) Mystery Book Test, 2) Money or Sex?, 3)Double Speak
 
Drawing Duplication A test conditions drawing duplication suitable for TV/Radio/Publicity environments.
 
Some Things Can't Be Taught, Only Learned A demonstration/discussion on the two pillars of mentalism, The Blindfold and Q & A. Why, more often than not, are these routines horribly presented, boring, and obvious? Why is it that in most mental acts there is absolutely no sense of a mind being read?

Superb Mentalism Lecture Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2016
This was hands down the best mentalism lecture I have ever seen. Every effect Ross demonstrated was believable both in premise and the way it was performed. I learned more from this lecture than any other on the subject.

Ross Johnson is someone worth studying!

The one thing that was disappointing was the description stated Ross would perform both his blindfold act and his Q&A act but the Q&A was not performed.

Very Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 11th, 2016
I was only familiar with Ross Johnson from his promotional videos on the internet. From those videos it became clear to me that he is a master entertainer. This lecture is full of really good, practicle routines and performance tips. The section on book test was just amazing !! The lecture is also very funny and entertaining to listen to because Ross Also has a very subtle, hilarious sense of humor as do his co-host. My only knock on this is that a "demonstration and discussion" of the Q and A act was advertised and not included in this lecture. I do want Penguin to be more carefull when advertising these things as I would have been very disappointed if that was the only reason I was purchasing this. Overall, I'm very happy with this lecture and feel that I picked up several things of great value that I can use in my performances. What more could you ask?

The title says it all. Ross has delivered the mentalism lecture I've been waiting for. Practical, real world effects delivered with perfect timing, humor and style. Couldn't recommend this lecture more.

A true pro Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 27th, 2016
These are the mostly the type of lectures I love learning from. "Seasoned professionals" as I refer to them. Great advise and theory, and I would easily pay more just for his envelope switch alone. It has an extra bonus when another amazing guest magician drops by for what turns out to be an insightful and at times an incredibly funny lecture. This lecture should be in everyone's library!

The Blindfold Act! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2016
The blindfold act was my favorite part of this lecture. I've seen other mind readers do blindfold routines that were not impressive at all because of the large gaps in the tape making the method totally obvious. Ross Johnson talks about this and shares not only his method, but details on how to make the act convincing. Many other great ideas in this show and lecture.

Very practical mentalism. Tried and true stuff. What card use there was seemed very appropriate in a mental act. Love his acerbic wit. Great advice on audience management.

Definitely good to see how a long time pro handles his business. Great sense of humor too. Everything he teaches is stuff he's performed a lot, so it's all well tuned. Recommended.

Simply a "MUST" Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 22nd, 2016
The people who know the value of Ross Johnson's name and wisdom on a product don't need a review to convince them to purchase it (and they probably already own this lecture anyway).

But just in case you're on the fence, know that Ross Johnson is a most trusted, well-respected gentleman/legend in the field of mentalism; revered by the leading professional mentalists of today.

A few routines from his "Simply Psychic" DVD are on this lecture with updated presentations. "Caffeinated Coins" is his take on "Jackpot Coins" and it's already to go at a moments notice in my briefcase.

Add to all this the insightful, sometimes very colorful, commentary from Dan Harlan and Michael Weber, and it's the most enjoyable, entertaining 3+ hours of one can learn from.

Simply highly recommended and a MUST for all mentalists of any skill level.

I wasn't to familiar with Ross Johnson until I saw youtube video of him performing mentalism at corporate gigs and it became very clear to me that he is an INCREDIBLE performer. This lecture had a lot of really good "real world effects" and the conversations with the 2 host had me laughing very hard at times as Ross Johnson is a very funny man. This is the type of lecture I love, real world performers who know what works in the real world sharing there years of experience. Only 2 knocks. There were a few cases where Mr. Johnson was getting ready to say something very interesting and share his wisdom and he was iterupted by the host and made to lose his train of though and never came back to what he was saying. VERY annoying. Also he didn't cover any Q and A material. The add stated he would cover q and a with a demonstration and discussion. Penguin needs to do a better job of making sure the lesctures stay on point with what was advertised. Overall, I must say this was very much worth the time and money and was a great mentalism lecture.
